It's that time of year!

I'm fried. Seriously. I'm exhausted. My brain is not functioning.

So. It's time for "ASK ME ANYTHING!"

Or I should say, ask me almost anything. Certain things I don't answer.

How about this...one random question will get a signed copy of my new book!

So. Ask away!

What hair products do you use on your gorgeous mane of hair, lady?

Not that it matters, you could probably use dish soap and it would look beautiful.

Oddly enough, we're playing "Interview" around the blogs, so I will give you one of our questions.

If Hollywood made a movie of your life, who would you like to see play the lead role of you?

I would also like to know, what is your personal motto?

(My new one is : I meet and exceed all expectations)

marythemom said...

How do your children feel about your blog? I post pictures and information about mine and it bothers them some. I need a place to vent so I do it anyway.

With regards to future fan mail, will you a) answer it yourself b) not answer it at all c) hire someone to do it for you or d) post samples on your blog for us to laugh at?

Supes said...

Who's your favorite sibling? (trick question)

Heather @ Desperately Seeking Sanity said...

Do the people that you work with, and your boss, know that you are going to have a published book? What about the girl that once said she thought you looked like a blogger that she followed? What ever happened to her?

And one more...

Do you have a fear of success?

MDA said...

Disneyland or Disneyworld?

Wilma said...

Any hints on getting rid of insomnia you would like to pass on?

Sabrina said...

When your child asks you how babies are born and you tell her "you go to the hospital and the doctor helps you deliver the baby" and then she says "no mommy, How does the baby get out of your tummy, does he cut it out?" how do you explain vagina's and pushing and all that fun stuff? bear in mind she's 4.

squishytushy said...

Are we going to learn Boy Child & Girl Child's real names in your book?

Fine For Now said...

How did you get to be so awesome?

La Petite Redhead said...

How did you end up writing the book and getting it published?

Lil Mouse said...

in college, we used to play a game called, "who would you do?" it had variations like would you rather 'do' this guy or wash this guy's hair? this was egged on by a particular mentor of mine who is just crude as can be, but when you see a 20 year old squirm at the thought of touching a really greasy nasty dude's locks, well, you can see why the game would continue. It's great for roadtrips.

So who/what would you rather do? Spend a night with your ex husband, or lose a body part? Your choice on the body part. ;-) See I gave you an easy one !

Lynnbug said...

Grits or Hashbrowns?

zentmrs said...

My question is (and I know this is going to sound the opposite of the way I mean it, but I'll go ahead anyway) - what gave you the idea that you could write a book? And by that I mean, I have dreams of writing books. Maybe lots of us do. How did you make that dream into a reality? How did you find the courage/discipline/? to actually do it? I'm totally impressed by that I have to tell you. You do rock.

Maggie said...

Could you blog a bit more about your working out habits? You motivate me! Seriously!! I wish the season was right for running outside again, boo.

Tarasview said...

Did you have a childhood best friend? What was he/she like? How long did you stay friends?

Who taught you about God?

Favourite flavour of ice cream?

KrustyLynn said...

1. Did you realize when you started this blog that all these people would love you? Because we do...

2. If you had to have the body of one animal and the face of another, what would the two animals be?

3. Have you ever been called the wrong name and just let that person keep calling you the wrong name, mostly because it's too late (and possibly rude) to correct them? (I do that all the time.)

Jen said...

I would just like it noted that I was totally your first stalker.
And now for my question...

Last year, you made it your goal to have something published within the year. Can you post a little about the process you went though to make it happen? Were'd you start, etc.

Also...how many blog hits do you get a day?

Anonymous said...

How much do you weight and how much would you like to lose?

Kevin said...

Did you know I had a crush on you in high school. I did.

Jamie said...

Have you ever skipped to the end of a book and read the ending or last page before finishing the book?

Sabrina said...

What's the first thing you're going to buy with your first paycheck from the book?

(PS: my first question above was an attempt to have you help me answer a parenting question, yes, I was looking to you to help me out there, but I finally broke down and explained birth canals and vaginas and that seemed to work so you can ignore it :P)

The Other Chick said...

Why do you ignore the fact that your husband cheats on you?

Lorissa said...

Other than your own blog, what's your favorite blog on the internet?

Living said...

Heather said...

That's too bad that the other chick sucks so bad!

Anyway...

What is the one thing that you look forward to doing every single day, it is not a day without this one thing?

And what is your favorite magazine to read?

Snarky Lady said...

If you gave Boy Child and Girl Child pseudo names for use on your blog -- what would your choices be? (And I mean name names, cause obviously you already call them by pseudo-names.) (And yes, I just confused myself as well!)

Does it make you uncomfortable that people all over the internet know your first and last name?

The first time someone you didn't know left a comment on your blog, what was your reaction?

What would cause you to stop blogging?

Kim's Korner said...

Hi,

Longitme lurker with a quick question.

For your book tour, does any of it have to be paid out of pocket (airfare, hotels, meals, etc.) or is everything covered by the publisher?

Mrs. Scuba said...

Have you been watching the Rock of Love Bus Tour? If so what are your thoughts :)

tulips4me said...

What happened to the young woman that worked in your office and said you looked like a woman whose blog she reads?

Reluctant Housewife said...

Why do you keep describing yourself as unattractive? You're not, you know (I've seen the picture you've posted here - you have great hair and a lovely smile). So why so down on yourself?

Rachel said...

I left a question in the comment section of one of the posts where you answered questions, so I guess I will come back and leave it here too. WOW! That was a clusterfuck sentence.

So, great taste or less filling?? Inquiring minds...

velocibadgergirl said...

Can we hang out in Ohio again someday? Or not in Ohio? Whatever. I just want to hang out, cuz that was the shiz.

Love!
